I'm not so sure about that - some people may end up wiping out half
of the system because of this conflict ...

Anyway - as a temporary workaround for unstable I ended up creating
empty metapackage 'libg1-fake' which depends on libgl1-nvidia-glx and
provides libgl1. This allowed to remove conflicting libgl1-mesa-glx and
put system back to a consistent state.

So far looks good - quake works :)

With best wishes,
